This again?  We *did* and *do* say shira for kriyat yam suf, and there is
no hava amina not to.  And we celebrate it on the day it happened, as they
did.   We celebrate Purim on the day our ancestors did, which is on the
day that the danger was past and they were *able* to celebrate; not while
the battle was raging and nobody knew who would win.

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
